No One Would Tell (1996)



Reviews and Comments

This movie is a study of an abusive relationship between two characters played to a tee by Candice Cameron Bure and, playing against type to good effect, Fred Savage. As a rule, I don't like TV movies that double as public service announcements. I'm tempted to dislike this one more than usual because it appears to rely (and sometimes does) on the type of sensationalistic drama of daytime soap opera to keep its audience. At the same time, it's more sincere than most television dramas, and it has a cast that elevates the story above its roots. And, to be fair, it does have a valid and important cause. Unfortunately, the film falls short in spite of these strengths.
